Tweet from Joe Biden, 1:07 p.m. EDT

(Sep. 28, 2020) — As has been reported by some outlets, the Biden/Harris campaign has declared a “lid” in the morning hours on nearly a dozen dates throughout the month of September without any explanation, including on Monday, the day before the first presidential debate.

As some have observed, the legacy media have neither remarked about nor apparently questioned the campaign as to why the Democratic presidential contender has nothing more to say or public appearances to make after 10:00 a.m. EDT on the days “lids” are called with approximately five weeks until the election.

On Monday, a “lid” was declared at 9:52 a.m. EDT, according to Fox News producer Pat Ward. In a second tweet, Ward indicated that vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris will be making an appearance in North Carolina Monday.

Senator Harris will be traveling to Raleigh, North Carolina today to give remarks and attend a campaign event,” Ward tweeted after his announcement of the day’s “lid.”

According to Tim Graham of The Boston Herald, “a ‘lid’ is a note to your press pool that you plan no further public events on your schedule. “

As of this writing, Biden’s Twitter account has issued two tweets subsequent to the lid having been called.  In a tweet at approximately 10:30 a.m., Biden appeared to make a random comment about the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court resulting from the passing of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18.  “There’s no mystery when it comes to what’s happening with the Supreme Court,” Biden wrote. “President Trump and Republicans have been trying to throw out Obamacare for years — and now they see an opening to get it done. We can’t let them get away with it.”

A few minutes after 1:00 p.m., the account tweeted, “Here’s the deal: Until we deal with COVID-19, we’ll never get our economy fully back on track, get our kids safely back to school, or get our lives back. It’s why as president, I won’t waste a day getting this virus under control.”  The tweet included a link to a “COVID Timeline” which first brings the reader to a solicitation for financial support.

Upon scrolling down, the page is not a timeline, but rather, Biden’s plan for combating the virus.

At approximately 12:38 PM EDT, this writer contacted the Biden campaign through its website with, “This is a media inquiry.  Why is a ‘lid’ declared in the morning hours so frequently?  What does it mean, and what is its purpose?”

We received the immediate on-screen response of:

  1. While Biden has been referred to as “sleepy Joe”, I would also call him, “no gas joe”.
    If he can’t do a full debate without brakes, just how could he put in a full, long days work with lots on his plate (day after day). Looking at his long work record in government, what would he really get done. We know he would only be a puppet for the deep, dark, dank, dammed, and demented state.

    That is why we need to win the election to cut off his puppet strings. In my town in
    PA I have seen many, many Trump signs in front of homes. Indeed, much much, more than before/last election. I also sense, many voters are “ticked off”, and dread mail in votes. Let’s all encourage others to get on the Trump Train and “VOTE AT THE VOTING BOOTHS. ALL VOTES MATTTER.

  2. So good to have The Post & Email as a healthy alternative to today’s yellow stream media and its yellow journalism (i.e., today’s infectious news from “jaundice journalism”)!

    “Gafffe-A-Minute” Joke Biden says herein: “It’s why as president, I won’t waste a day getting this virus under control”. Huh?

    Does Joke intend to shut the US economy down to surrender to the China virus (aka, The Asian Invasion”)?

    Does Joke know that The Great Influenza of 1918 LASTED FOUR YEARS and came in three waves 1918- 1922? http://www.johnmbarry.com/the_great_influenza__the_story_of_the_deadliest_pandemic_in_history__133171.htm

    Sharon, is it possible for The Post & Email to reach out to JOHN DURHAM, who lives nearby The P&E in CT, to see if HE is putting a lid on releasing any report/indictments on Obamagate’s “natural born Citizen”-THEFT and CT SSN-FRAUD and Trump election interference 08-28-08- TODAY?
